Tidewater Virginia Historical Society Lecture

Virtual Trip along Heritage Music Trail

October 24, 2021

Enjoy a musical and visual journey along the 300-mile Heritage Music Trail in southwest Virginia led by librarian and musician Barry Trott. Along the way, we will explore the lives and works of music icons such as Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys, The Carter Family, and Archie Edwards all of whom developed their unique styles in southwest Virginia. Images and vintage recordings will conjure up a rich tapestry of the music that originated along Virginia’s Route 58 — from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the coalfields.

Barry Trott is the Adult Services Consultant at the Library of Virginia, where he helps public libraries across the Commonwealth plan and develop services for adult library users.

He has presented programs on books, readers, and reading for the American Library Association annual conference, the Public Library Association conference, and the Virginia Library Association conference and for library systems throughout the country.  And, he has a passion for Virginia’s Heritage Music.
